Public meeting on Tuesday, July 12 to present DC Circulator route alternatives east of the Anacostia River.
(Washington, DC) The District Department of Transportation (DDOT) is hosting a public meeting on Tuesday, July 12 to present the route alternatives that are being evaluated to expand DC Circulator service east of the Anacostia River.
At this meeting, DDOT will be presenting route alternatives and asking the residents that will be served by the east of the Anacosita River extension, and all interested stakeholders, to provide comment and indentify their preferred route alternative.
The proposed extension was developed during the DC Circulator’s 10-year planning process in 2010 and 2011 and was last presented at a public meeting that was held on June 6, 2011. To connect east of the Anacostia River the proposed extension will cross the 11th Street Bridge to serve the residents of Ward 8.
A summary of the feedback that was obtained from the community at the June 6 meeting and subsequent discussions will also be presented at this meeting.
DDOT will be making an online survey available for the community to indicate their preferences among the routing options and provide comment. The survey will be made available at http://1.usa.gov/nDaQ4B starting on July 12.
DDOT will also be presenting proposed changes to the Union Station terminus of the Union Station-Navy Yard Metro line, and proposed stop consolidations on other routes in the DC Circulator system.
